Pun Collins lands at Them There for his first major release of 2018, following the hour long, beat-led exploration of ‘World Wide Wave’ for New York’s Dirty Tapes. This time, French artist, producer and filmmaker also known as Axel Lacan sets out to explore the more remote territories in his work. Delving deeper into the space between the beats; pulling apart the tracks bar-by-bar; letting them float weightlessly, and nurturing each noise, node, and note with a minimalist attention to detail.
Beneath the surface of ‘Lunar Influence’ lies a black hole of musical forms. Sucking in elements of footwork, spoken word, minimalism,and dub to form a unique mass of abstract ambience and paranoid pop.
Collaborative features on Lunar Influence arrive in the form of Japanese production maestro and Leaving Records alumni Fumitake (Bun) Tamura and the ever intriguing Australian Ambient up and comer Nico Callaghan aka Nico Niquo.
Thank you kindly to all those that made this majik evening a success. Braving the harsh English frost to witness the sorcery of these three unique performers. Sam and Davids captivating improvisation using curious home-made instrumentation followed by live extracts from Dean Mcphee’s sublime latest offering ‘Four Stones’. Here are the best of the photos taken by the man Ashley Hardman.
